This One Is For The Military Lovers - Vintage Watches For Spring

The weather is looking up here in the UK and we are all looking forward to enjoying a bit of sunshine this summer, the first in a while where we can enjoy a little normality and the freedom to travel again - a past time a lot of the watches on today's list have enjoyed over the years.

We are heavy on military watches today and all of them have a story to tell. From the famous 'Dirty Dozen' family, we have a stunning Longines example we bought from the soldier's own family who have provided us with information and photographs to accompany the watch, and not one but two of the Omega models - one of which we also acquired from the soldier's own family also with photos - fantastic provenance!

We also have a wonderful WW2 dashboard clock, and a Post-WWII Airforce Chronometer Pilot's watch from IWC, both of which will have traveled the skies extensively. That's the thing about vintage watches, they all have a past, and part of the joy of owning and wearing them is that you become part of that tapestry. 

If you are a military collector or enthusiast, then this is your lucky week, get the kettle on and dive into this magpies nest, you might just find your new summer watch!
